Running Backs Preview Part One: Strategies Galore! (08/09 Fantasy Football Podcast)

• 66 min

Donate to St. Jude as part of our Draft-A-Thon! Bid on pre-draft calls with our experts, a spot in our Podcast League, a guest spot on our show and more! On the first of two parts in our running backs preview, we look at the broader picture and assess the position while looking at some noteworthy trends. Dave and Heath tell you what they're looking for in a Round One RB (4:26) and what the best RB strategy is (6:55). Is it Zero-RB? Hero-RB? Dave-RB? Within this discussion we talk about how your strategy might change in a 2-WR vs. 3-WR league ... We've got some interesting RB stats for you to consider (18:00)! How many Top 12 RBs are drafted in the first two rounds? How many Top 24 RBs were drafted after Round 7? How should this impact your draft? And we are seeing a decline in RB catches over the last few seasons (22:15) and we'll discuss what this means for 2022 ... We talk about how strategies change in different formats (27:15) like non PPR and 0.5 PPR and different league sizes. Is there more of a premium on RB in deeper leagues? Then let's do some sleepers (40:00), breakouts (43:10) and busts (48:00)! And we finish with 15 RBs in five minutes (56:10) as we give you some quick hits on key RBs like D'Andre Swift, Aaron Jones, Saquon Barkley, Nick Chubb, Antonio Gibson and more...
